    Default Question for Keith Jarrett

    I dont remember you ever saying what you do with your hives after almonds, do you take them to other states or not? Keith's always quiet about his operation , he show's more in his photo album than he tells on the forum

    That's because he really doesn't exist. We think he exists and he wants us to believe he exists but really now...he could just be the ghost of beekeepers past.

    I heard he spends his off season at a culinary school in Seattle learing how to perfect his creme brulee recipe.

    Na back on the serious side, Keith so all you do is pollinate almonds and sell off some hives? no honey or stuff like that, is it not worth taking your bee's to the apples in Washington? you know you dont have to answer these if they are to personal

    TWT, pollinate & shake bees is where 90% of my income comes from, honey? I'm thinking of doing more of that, but Calif has been tough latley.

    If you do the math, BTW, this is where you lose most commercial keepers .

    Washington apples? no way on earth would I chase that.

    What has been thought of as an easy, sustainable , renewable resource(bees) MAY NOT BE SO...Canada usually lags in time from 6 months to 2 years as to what often occurs in the USA,weather it be in the MidUS honey producing states or California.The past few years show higher wintering losses in Canada.There are alot of factors in play in this game , varroa only being one, but probably the biggest

    Many people have told us where to put this candy bar but we think the best place is in your mouth!!


    Sounds like KJ didn't like the Wazo and sent them a suggestion.

    Keith do you think the keepers having problems , producing bees, (you aren't) are failing to do a few things.......or is it just luck,location,genetic's ,I am thinking what your "to do,or must do list" is, control nosema, mites, feed pollen sub up to 6 months in advance, young queens..... what else Keith

    and do you have a patent on your sub?......I have been using a little of that CHEAP chinese pollen in my protein patties,what you think?, it is radiation treated but scary.

    We certainly haven't be free of problems in Canada, higher losses in the east and in Alberta

    Irwin, you make some good points.

    First,I do think keepers are having problems, They are failing to do things on TIME. "must do list" yes Irwin, That is a good way of putting it. Nosema can be controled by proper sub feeding. There is no patent on my club, Oh, I meant sub.

    Irwin, most keepers STILL won't feed more than 5 pounds of sub in the fall. I don't see anything changing until they change.

    Most of the U.S had below honey crop, and the bees reflect that, go figure.

    Keith,
    Are you saying that fat bees are happy bees? That Happy bees come from California. God. I hope they don't sue me for not paying royalties!

    On a serious note, what amount of sub are you feeding your girls?

    Skinner, I feed about 15-20 pounds a year per hive (aug-Jan).

    You can look at it as the same price as a queen.

    Skinner, I'm finishing my last load of pollen sub feeding tomarrow until the new year, I will post pics of some of the hives and brood.
